Brazil’s largest shipyard, Estaleiro Atlântico Sul (EAS), has started project-detailing on five Promef-related Aframax tankers with the help of ShipConstructor CAD/CAM Software.

In May, EAS launched the Suezmax tanker, João Cândido, the first vessel in the massive Promef shipbuilding expansion program for Brazil’s state-sponsored oil company, Petrobras.

Following its success with ShipConstructor on the first vessel, EAS is now using ShipConstructor to design and detail three separate Promef-related projects simultaneously: the 5 Aframax Tankers, 10 Suezmax tankers, plus a P-55 offshore semi-submersible hull.

A variety of other Brazilian shipyards and engineering offices have also been utilizing ShipConstructor to address the rapidly expanding demand for vessels to service Brazil’s offshore industry. Consunav, Kromav Engenharia, Estaleiro Inace and ETP Engenharia are all part of the growing Brazilian ShipConstructor client-base.

To address the growing demand for workers trained to use the ShipConstructor AutoCAD based shipbuilding CAD/CAM application, França noted that EAS donated 40 ShipConstructor licenses to the technical college IFPE (Instituto Federal de Educação, Ciência e Tecnologia de Pernambuco) in order to help train new workers.
